I created an art gallery of characters, creatures, and objects, using fonts as the design method. Each character is composed of letters from a certain type of font - no additional paths or bitmaps were used in their creation. From there, I would apply certain filters to give the model more personality.
The gallery is referred to as Digital Letraset because letraset is the term used for creating art with font letters in a paper-based craft option. Since my work is all digitally based and I include the use of digitally-applied filters, I chose to at Digital at the beginning.
Each font is available via freeware and downloadable off of the internet without a charge.
